Antique tales at Prestbury House

Residents and guests at Prestbury House were delighted to meet antiques guru, Eric Knowles, when he paid a visit to the home to give an enthralling talk on how he began his career in antiques. He revealed the items he had found which first inspired his love for antiques and provided an insight into his extensive stint as an expert on Antiques Roadshow and more recently, as a presenter on Bargain Hunt.
Following Eric’s talk, residents and guests were invited to enjoy a light lunch prepared by our chefs before returning to their seats to see their items valuated by Eric. There was an array of treasures for Eric to cast his expert eye over, from miniature portraits to glass figurines and even a Victorian chatelaine, which was a real talking point.
